This is a 'back to nature' camping holiday as the only facilities are two compost toilets and a water standpipe with natural spring water (regularly tested). There is no electric, although we do have solar lights in the toilets. There are no shops for 3 miles, eggs from our own hens can be bought from the farmhouse. We have plenty of wildlife up here so it is the ideal retreat for artists, birdwatchers, and people who just love the countryside.
Large Pitch RestrictionsNo pitch size restrictions - price is per person not tent.
Campfire DetailsWe allow campfires as long as they are kept directly off the grass so as not to scorch it and are not left unattended (we wouldn\'t like to be the cause of a mountain fire!). Braziers are available on request free of charge. Logs and firelighters are for sale at the farmhouse.
We are open from the end of March to the end of October, although we do accept some out-of-season bookings made in advance. Adults £6 pp per night, Children (3-15yrs) £3 pp per night, under 3yrs and dogs are free.

Off the M4 at junction 45, take the A4067 bypass signposted to Pontardawe for 1.9 miles. At the next roundabout take the 3rd exit onto the B4291 Birchgrove Road (over the river bridge into Glais). Take the next turning left onto the Ynysmond Road, keep going for 1.6 miles then turn right at the 'Wernddu Road' sign, which is just before you enter Alltwen village. Follow this road for 1.3 miles before you come to a farmhouse on your right with a raised lawn in front of it and a 'Tir Abbey 1/2 mile' pointing through their yard. Follow the signs straight up to the farm.
From Neath, follow the signs for Pontardawe. Take the A474 road up the hill for 0.5 miles then turn left into Bryncoch village. After 0.5 miles you will pass the Lamb and Flag pub on the right, take the 2nd turning left onto Farmers Road. After another 0.5 miles go straight ahead at the junction, signposted Tyllwyd, and travel along for 1.2 miles before you come to a farmhouse on your left with a raised lawn in front of it and a 'Tir Abbey 1/2 mile' pointing through their yard.
